When it comes to flagship cameras, most photographers tend to buy into one brand and stick with them. It's not very often that people who shoot with these cameras switch from one camera brand to another. A big reason for this is because familiarity is valuable and especially useful when shoots are critical.
Over the last few years, it seems that more photographers have been switching brands. With companies like Sony now producing competing flagship cameras, even photographers that shoot with these types of systems have seemingly started to shop around. We've seen how Sony has managed to gain a huge chunk of the photography market, and cameras like the a9 and a9 II have played a big part in that. Having the ability to shoot 20 fps without any blackout is pretty incredible and extremely useful.
Not to be outdone, Canon's latest release, the 1D X Mark III, looks like it's all kinds of wonderful. It too can shoot up to 20 fps, and although it may not be without any blackout, it manages it with the mechanical shutter; making it very useful when shooting a fast subject. The major downside of this camera is the price point. The Canon is $2,000 more than the Sony, but does it offer $2,000 more in terms of camera?
A recent video from photographer and YouTuber Jared Polin discusses the main differences between both of these camera systems. If you're on the fence between both of these cameras, then you may find this video useful.
